It was interesting enough, but I was a little disappointed in the exhibit. I would recommend a visit but only at discounted admission.

It's ok. Our 10y/o is into architecture. We spent about 20 mins. It is interesting but probably not worth the full price. We would not visit if not for the Groupon deal.

Not much to see but a lot of models and photos. LOTS to read. The location is excellent right across from the Museum of Jewish History and the Hudson. Worth a 45 minute visit.

About The Skyscraper Museum

There are many ways to look at a city. One can get a view of it while walking down its avenues, flying through its airspace, or gazing from afar at its distinctive skyline, an unmistakable fingerprint. The curators of The Skyscraper Museum, however, view New York through its history, exploring the personalities that shaped the skyline along with the stories of the buildings themselves. Their exhibits delve deep into these stories, examining, for instance, the economic circumstances and technological advances which allowed the Woolworth Building—sometimes called the "Cathedral of Commerce"—to sprout from New York's fertile pavement.

Even the very bones of the museum support its subject, with displays set into stacked cases that rise from floor to ceiling. The stainless steel ceiling and floor extend the verticality, making guests feel as if they're striding through the skyline of a city as giants, caught between the perspective of man and skyscraper. The narrow passageways of the museum feature long strips of lighting, the stacked panels along the walls and streaks of light creating the sensation of driving down a bustling boulevard at night.
